out Raquel Watson, LMSW
Hi, I’m Raquel. I am a licensed masters social worker/therapist (LMSW) and focus on treating trauma. I understand how your traumatic experiences can haunt you on a daily basis, making you feel ruined or damaged, but you are not. I can help you learn how to like yourself again. We focus on processing how your experience was done to you and not because of you.
My passion is teaching skills and tools that can improve your life while connecting you to a better understanding of who you want to be and where you want to go. Everyone is important and deserves a nonjudgmental, comforting space and the support to figure things out.
We’ll work to learn how to work with your symptomatology instead of against it. Your diagnoses are not all of you, just a part of you. My primary clinical approaches include person-centered, trauma informed, experiential, and strength-based using a diverse set of evidence-based practices and interventions.
After experiencing trauma during Hurricane Katrina, I focused my studies on how to help people process and move through their traumatic experiences. Through this work, I’ve helped people in a wide variety of circumstances – inpatient & outpatient care, youth & adult shelters, and community based therapy settings.
I hope that you will reach out to me and give yourself the opportunity that you deserve.
